    Can't put it down

    Josh Aterovis does an amzing job of capturing the readers in by the first page. I sat down one evening and began to read this 232 page book, nearly 24 hours later I had finished this book and moved on to the next. This heart pounding, story takes you places you have been, places you've heard of, and places you never want to be. I could see myself in many characters, and honestly this book helped me see who I was, and helped me grow in many aspects of my life. Thanks!

    Pretty Much A Shrug

    This is the sort of book you might read watching TV, during commercial breaks; failing that, wait for the mid-season re-run period just prior to a Sweeps Week. It's simplistic, sugary and feel-good and it doesn't take a lot of concentration to follow it. Just something you might read to fill in the time. I will give this three stars for trying, anyway. Aterovis writes reasonably well in terms of word-smithing, but not much in this books rings true for me. For a mystery novel, there really isn't much in the way of mystery and the resolution of the murder just sort of pops out like it was tacked on all of a sudden--like when the author remembered the kind of book he was writing after he got done promoting his own social issue agenda. And believe me, you will know his stand on every gay social issue there is by the time you get done with it. It's that kind of book. Characterizations are flat cut-outs. Most situations are contrived. There're lots better out there, so keep looking.

    Bleeding Hearts

    Killian Kendall is 16, he's oblivious to matters of his heart, and, when his new friend is murdered, he is about to be whacked upside the head with a terrible dose of reality. Josh Aterovis has written a gripping and topical story about one boy's struggle to find love, acceptance, and chosen family in the face of intolerance. Killian is a real winner--I haven't met a character as kind-hearted and fully presented since Billy Sive. This young man's story, told from his point-of-view, is well-executed, so good, in fact, that I read it all in one sitting. It's an excellent story, ably told, and certain to be just the first of many novels from a talented and capable new author. I highly recommend it! '

    Most Amazing Tale of Mystery, Suspense, and Love

    This novel is one of the most captivating stories I have ever read. It deals with a mystery of dire proportions and a storyline people will find intriguing. The story centers around young Killian Kendall and his growth and enlightenment through adverse conditions. With the whole world against him, Killian strives to find the killer of a gruesome murder before they strike next. Follow this young detective as he searches for the truth and tries to find love in the process. A quest for justice and a comming of age saga, with a twist of fate, lay ahead for those who read Bleeding Hearts.
